We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Muslim Sororities Wednesday, December 14, 2005

This isn't my usual food for stories here but I thought it was interesting. It also shows that all the folks in Ky aren't quite as backwards as some think.

A story that's been floating around Lexington, Ky for a little while was on NPR this morning. They ran a story of a Muslim sorority at the University of Kentucky. This seems a bit odd for many, whose impressions of sorority are blondes who are drunk, dumb and oversexed. This is one stereotype that's out there. This particular sorority won't have alcohol or co-ed mixers either. They're going to stick to the religion. They're awaiting university approval for Gamma Gamma Chi. The sorority itself has been existance for about seven months now but has no official chapters. It looks like the University of Kentucky may be the first. Here's a story from the wire about it.
